POP QUIZ: Are you here to absorb authentic Portland culture? BONUS CREDIT: Are you trying to live like a local while you are? Because Portland is a MILLENNIAL PLAYGROUND best understood when explored like someone from here. Rather than focus on how to make more money, Portlanders focus on how to enjoy their time. Here are the locals' favorite pastimes: picking up weed from the neighborhood dispensary, getting cozy inside a cafe lounge, eating exotic food with tons of options, and grabbing beers from a funky looking bar. So for starters, we'll poke around a WEED DISPENSARY, where we'll get a feel for just how legal marijuana is in the city. Second, we'll sip tea inside a cozy residence that's been converted into a LIVING ROOM CAFE. Third, we'll grab meals from a FOOD CART POD featuring Vegan, Egyptian, and Vegan-Egyptian options. And lastly, we'll drink beers at a TRIPPY BAR that was intentionally designed to look like an acid trip. To explore the city like a true Portlander, I’ll be your guide to show you where you’d go and how you’d do it. Along the way, I'll enlighten you to the community's culture and provide custom recommendations on how to live like the locals!

Before becoming a tour guide, I supervised the largest low-barrier shelter in Oregon. I joined forces with local communities which represented Portland's culture: people who fought for vulnerable populations, got involved in environmental preservation, made it a point to support local, and made it okay to be yourself as long as you're not a jerk to anyone. If this all sounds uplifting, that's because Portland is an uplifting city, and I have a lot of stories to share that prove it!
